Before you begin

  1. Select or create a Cloud Platform project.
  2. Enable billing for your project.
  3. Enable the Cloud Asset Inventory API.
  4. Set up authentication with a service account so you can access the API from your local workstation.

Installing the client library

npm install @google-cloud/asset

Using the client library

  const util = require('util');
  const {AssetServiceClient} = require('@google-cloud/asset');

  const client = new AssetServiceClient();

  async function quickstart() {
    const projectId = await client.getProjectId();
    const projectResource = `projects/${projectId}`;
    // TODO(developer): Choose asset names, such as //[YOUR_BUCKET_NAME].
    // const assetNames = ['ASSET_NAME1', 'ASSET_NAME2', ...];

    const request = {
      parent: projectResource,
      assetNames: assetNames.split(','),
      contentType: 'RESOURCE',
      readTimeWindow: {
        startTime: {
          seconds: Math.floor(new Date().getTime() / 1000),

    // Handle the operation using the promise pattern.
    const result = await client.batchGetAssetsHistory(request);
    // Do things with with the response.
    console.log(util.inspect(result, {depth: null}));

This library follows Semantic Versioning.

This library is considered to be General Availability (GA). This means it is stable; the code surface will not change in backwards-incompatible ways unless absolutely necessary (e.g. because of critical security issues) or with an extensive deprecation period. Issues and requests against GA libraries are addressed with the highest priority.
